Restraining Order Baw Baw VIC

Restraining Order Baw Baw Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Baw Baw

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This indicates an individual can not make an application for divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Baw Baw to be separated but to continue living in the same house throughout the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are performed completely separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must request a divorce.

It is important to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to acquire.

Child Support

You don’t need us to inform you what child assistance is or to get a basic concept of what your commitment (or entitlement) will be.

There is a quick children support estimator on the website of the Department of Human Services Child Support (” the Department”) which you can use.

However, the child support system and the formula used to compute child support can be a complex and painful minefield. We can help you with some of the lesser recognized areas and intricacies, and assist you to tactically prepare your child support arrangements and obligations for the future to ensure the very best possible arrangement remains in place provided your and the other moms and dads circumstances.

Some areas that Our Family Law Baw Baw can assist you with include:

Advising you regarding your alternatives relating to child support which may consist of arranging a private child support arrangement, in either a limited or binding child support agreement.

Personal arrangements offer certainty for both moms and dads for a longer period of time (no continuous reassessments each year or more), enable greater flexibility in the approach of payment (direct financing in periodic or lump sums, or payment of educational, medical and extracurricular costs in part or in lieu), and eliminate the need to deal with the bureaucracy of the Department.

Assisting In Steps To Recover Unpaid Child Support In Baw Baw

We can help in converting the unpaid amount from a Commonwealth debt to a personal debt to enable you to side step the Department and pursue private recovery litigation through the Court or more serious actions such as recovering the unpaid debt from a recalcitrant spouse at the global airport gate terminal.

Helping you to change the Department evaluated child assistance amount to much better match your individual situations.

Assessments are prepared by the Department based upon a basic formula, however can be changed under different situations (up or down) based upon factors such as the expense of maintaining the child in the way the moms and dads meant (e.g.: private education or extra extracurricular expenses), if a child has extra health or medical needs, if a moms and dad is earnings poor but ‘asset rich’, etc. Other situations also apply. The modification of assessment process can be made complex and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Baw Baw Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be helpful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking to pre-arrange how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it generally allows a private arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a substantial sum of money, consisting of the expenses connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Baw Baw seeking to finalise their commitments to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a monetary agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Baw Baw might now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or web browser history.

De Facto Relationships

In March 2009 a new day dawned for de facto relationships, provided the couple separated after 1 March 2009, they were entitled to have their claim for a residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court along with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a genuine domestic basis for at least 2 years (or less if they have a child, registered their relationship under the law of the State or one made a significant contribution to the residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Baw Baw.

De facto spouses should not fear that they should walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the modification of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
